(Dec. 7, 2018) Fans of virtual reality and simulated rides will have a new destination on 117th Street open in time for the holidays after Ocean City Council approved a related conditional use permit last month.
Linar Yagudin, who operates “Escape Room” businesses on Second, 56th and 118th streets, is moving into a new venture with a virtual reality attraction on 117th StreEscape Room
“I’m applying for the business license probably next week,” he said.
While still firming up details, Yagudin hopes to launch the business during the last week before Christmas.
“The location is a little over 1,000 square feet,” he said.
The space will provide free roaming virtual reality experiences for individuals or multi-players, as well as immersive simulation rides, Yagudin said.
Ocean City’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved a conditional use application for the new virtual reality business at its Oct. 2 meeting, with City Council following suit in mid-November.
